Virginia’s new Attorney General Jason Miyares fired 30 staff members and announced investigations into the Virginia Parole Board and Loudoun County Schools within hours of being sworn into office.
Mr. Miyares was sworn in as Virginia’s Attorney General on Saturday and he’s already cleaning house.
“One of the reasons Virginians get so fed up with government is the lack of transparency – and that’s a big issue here,” Miyares wrote. “The Virginia Parole Board broke the law when they let out murders, rapists, and cop killers early on their sentences without notifying the victims. Loudoun Country Public Schools covered up a sexual assault on school grounds for political gain, leading to an additional assault of a young girl.”
Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas claimed Miyares fired the entire Civil Rights division, however the AG’s spokesperson said only two staffers from that division were let go on Saturday.
“There are 12 individuals who work in the Office of Civil Rights – only two personnel changes were made,” Miyares spox Victoria LaCivita said.
Miyares will reportedly be prosecuting criminal cases in jurisdictions where Soros DAs declined to prosecute.
Republican Glenn Youngkin was sworn in as Virginia’s 74th Governor on Saturday and he got to work immediately as well.
Following his inauguration, Governor Youngkin immediately got to work and signed 11 executive actions.
Governor Youngkin banned divisive Critical Race Theory, mask mandates at schools, vaccine mandates for state employees, and withdrew from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
